Hi J, life is good and I just bought a great 1800 sq ft house from HUD for a whopping 45K, LOL! The POD Live sounds best through an old Showman Red Knob loaded with KT66`s through the effects return. I tried it direct thru PA and it was just OK, a bit harsh, and thru a MosValve poweramp with...
Gotta say, this is one of the most fantastic pedals on the market today coupled with a Variax, IMHO. I`m running it through the effects return of a Red Knob Showman loaded with KT66`s, and it`s probably the best $700 I spent, and that`s including the Variax 300. This is a cover bands dream for...
Hi John, good to hear from you! It`s good to know that this unit can do other tones too, cause I change gear like I do my socks, so maybe this one will stick around a while, LOL! Come to think of it, I gotta go change my socks.
Thanks for all the ideas, I really appreaciate it. Looks like the MI Tube Zone won the popularity contest, and the way everyone takes their pedals serious here, I`m pullin the trigger on one right now. The clips on their website also show a good range of other sounds, so it definately won`t go...
Looking for something that can do the Godsmack, Nickelback type crunch for a cover band I`ll be jammin with. Just has to be close as we`re only doing a few of these tunes and my Wreck clone has the classic-rock thing covered. Any ideas?
Barber Burn Unit EQ and the Tonebone Trimode. Both have rythem and lead settings and volume, and can be bypassed to enjoy that nice clean Deluxe tone. The Barber sounds Dumblish and the Tonebone Marshally. Simple setup that works for me anyway. Good Luck!
I got one and think it`s great, but I don`t believe it will sound good in front of an 18watt amp unless you play it low and use pedals for OD. Reverb should always go after OD, not before, so if your crankin the amp, the pedal just ain`t gonna sound good IMO.
Great post, I was just wondering the same thing. Lost some of my recording gear thanks to Rita, and I just got a Tascam 8 track with the CD burner, I know but it`s all I can afford right now, LOL! Are the ones mentioned good for a unit like this? Can you put fills in on the fly, etc.?
I tried it in my Hot British and my Classic and couldn`t really tell. Then for a laugh I tried a Telefunken smooth plate and still no difference to speak of. I`ve read threads where some can hear a difference, but personally I couldn`t, and it`s a pain in the but too, LOL!
Thanks for this info Jim, very helpful. I just got an older unit with the 500K pot swap, and found it good for an amp on the edge of breakup, like my Marshall with the preamp low with a touch of OD, but too bassy and trebly through my clean Twin. Sounds like these mods will do the trick. It does...
The old Boss tuner was good only if you used it thru an EB volume pedal with the tuner out jack, or an AB box as I did. Other than that, it sucked tone to the bone IMO. Some of my friends didn`t think so. Maybe a gift cerficate to an ear doctor would be a good gift for them in the future, LOL!
Really nice stuff for my downsized board, and the fact you can tuck a power supply in is a BIG bonus. Plus, who needs in/out jacks when you have them on your pedals anyway? Thanks for the link. Will be real helpful when I narrow down what I just NEED and don`t want taking up space.
